NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Cream Lipstick , Rs 650, available at Nykaa.com
I have already liked and talked about the NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in the shade Soft Spoken in my Blog Post HERE . Since I was generally happy about how the product fared on me, I actually decided to get 2 more shades from the NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Cream Range and today I am going to talk about these two.
The two shades that I got are PURE SOCIETY and NEAT NUDE.
Pure Society is described as Deep Violet with Blue Pearl. To me it appears as a deep violet with blue and magenta pearl and a stunning metallic finish on the lips. This is definitely the kind of shade that will work extremely well across a whole spectrum on skin tones and is especially flattering on warm Indian Skin.
Neat Nude is described as Dirty Grey Plum. This one is definitely a Grey Plum laden with fine silver pearl and again lends a gorgeous metallic finish to the lips.
The NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte lipsticks are available in about 12 gorgeous metallic shades and there really are some really fun colors to try in the range. These come in color indicating tubes and have a bent applicator as you can see in the picture below. The applicator is really good and picks up enough product at one go. It also helps in reaching to the corners of the lips and layers the product quite well.
The two shades that I have got are both extremely well pigmented and give opaque color in a single swipe and cover all lip pigmentation. The brush is very convenient to use and helps to layer the color beautifully as with a metallic lipstick, layering adds that gorgeous depth and intensity.
The NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Lipsticks dry down to a totally smudge proof color with high intensity metallic finish. I have definitely tried a few metallic lipsticks till now but these actually take the game to an entirely new level.
As is with all matte lipsticks, you definitely need to prep and prime your lips before application and these are no exceptions. However, I did notice that the lip colors actually settled a bit into the deepest lip lines and did take up a lot of moisture away from the lips during the wear.The colors don’t feather or bleed at all though and you can totally escape using a lip liner.
The colors wear very well, are completely waterproof, don’t transfer to cups and glasses and even survive meals but you can see it breaking down just in the centre of the lips as you finish your meal. At the end of the wear, which is typically after 7-8 hours, your lips may feel quite dry and parched.
Overall, I am highly satisfied with the NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Matte Lipsticks and totally recommend them to everyone. They may be a little drying towards the end of wear but I think that also comes from the fact that the formula sits very well on the lips and lasts for really long hours. Plus, some really cool looking metallic lipsticks can always make heads turn!
